I want to come home!

I have Jewish bloodline on both parents side and I would love to live in Israel and America, where I am now.

Ethiopian Jews

Why aren’t Sephardic Mentioned in Israel Aliyah subjects?
In America some Spanish people are rejected from Spain and Mexico. We weren’t born there but a lot of our traditions are Jewish. For a long time I was confused about my identity. Until I saw the Modeh Ani in my Grandmother’s Bible.

Included in "Mizrachi"

The term "Mizrachi Jews" also includes that group of Jews known as "Sephardi", defined loosely as Jews whose ancestors were expelled from Spain, or alternatively by their prayer and holiday traditions. Sephardi Jews came to Israel mainly from Turkey, Greece and France as well as northern Africa.
